REGARDING DUES INCREASE
Troop Dues can be broken down into these categories: National Registration Fee, Scouts Life Magazine, Scout Insurance and Operating Costs for the Troop. The National Membership Fee is the amount Troop 58 has to pay BSA National every year for every registered member (scouts, adults, merit badge counselors, etc..). These fees have increased $5 for everyone year.
In addition, the troop operating costs have increased. Things like patches, web sites fees, trailer insurance, etc. have all increased. I naddition we are now needing to pay for storage of the troop trailers which is approxiamtely $1,600 annually.
All this results in the troop raising duies by $25 this year.
If you have any financial concerns or needs of any kind, please reach out to Mr. Zangara for a confidential conversation.
There are several ways the Troop can help so please speak up if needed.
